When you are hit with an unavoidable cost out of nowhere, it can be difficult to get funds quickly. For some, turning to no credit check loans seems like the best solution.
With this said, things aren’t all rosy when looking into the finer details of no credit check payday loans. For one, they have a history of being offered by lower-tier lenders, which are companies that may not be as reputable. Secondly, due to the increased risk to the lender, a no credit check loan may work out to be more expensive than traditional finance.
No credit check loans are personal loans provided without the lender conducting a credit check prior to approval. The reason this isn’t often seen is that lenders take on considerably more risk when offering a loan without a credit check. Approving an applicant without first checking their credit score can be equated to buying a car without checking its service history.
For those who are unsure, a credit check can be summarised as a report card for an individual’s credit history. Everything from credit enquiries to bankruptcies may be seen on a single report. This allows other lenders to view the customer’s previous financial history and get an idea of their current situation. When an enquiry is conducted, it shows:
As when checking your own score, lenders need to pay every time they request a credit report. The cost of credit checking/reporting can quickly pile-up if not appropriately managed.
If you have bad credit, hearing that a lender doesn’t conduct credit checks could make you feel more comfortable when applying. You may think that if they don’t know your credit score, they are more likely to approve your application. Unfortunately, if a lender does not conduct a credit check, they are not following the responsible lending obligations set by the ASIC, which are in place to ensure that any loan provided can be reasonably repaid by the borrower.
It is mandatory for credit providers to conduct a credit check as per the ASIC’s responsible lending obligations. Any entity that lends money without conducting a credit check is acting illegally, and should not be considered trustworthy.
The more information a lender has on an applicant, the more informed their decision can be. Bank statements of an applicant don’t always show the entire picture. Because of this, lenders conduct these checks to ensure the information reported by the applicant is genuine.
Some lenders that offer online loans with no credit check make a few tweaks to make the venture more reasonable, some of which are listed below:
Before applying or entering an agreement with any lender, ensure they hold an active credit licence. It is illegal within Australia to provide credit without an appropriate credit licence; any company found to be doing so should be avoided and reported.
Some lenders offering no credit check loans may have higher costs than that of a traditional loan. Provided the lender holds an active credit licence, though, the amount able to be charged for a loan is capped.
Offering collateral for a no credit check loan may be a requirement with some lenders. If you don’t have an asset you are willing to offer, this is something to keep in mind.
A credit card can be a good option for an emergency expense. Credit cards give you the option to make payments without the cash readily available in your account at the time, for you to pay back at a future date (usually within the month). A credit card can also allow you to build your credit score if you make due repayments on time. If you are only using your credit card for an expense you can reasonably pay back within the month, this may be a better option for you.
A bad credit personal loan is another option for your consideration. These are a popular loan option among people with poor credit scores. The lender will look at other aspects of your finances, including bank statements, to reasonably decide whether you can afford to take out a loan for your desired amount. This allows you flexibility in how much you borrow and clearly sets out how much you will need to pay back over a specified period of time.
